from the kitchen of Chef Paul Prudhomme

Makes 2 servings

8 ounces medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup heavy whipping cream, in all
3½ tablespoons Chef Paul Prudhomme's Magic Seasoning Blends Six Spice®, in all
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 cup white onion, cut into 2 x 1/8 inch strips

how to prepare

Place shrimp in a bowl. Moisten with 1 tablespoon heavy cream and mix to coat shrimp thoroughly. Add 1 tablespoon of Six Spice.  Mix well, making sure all sides of the shrimp are coated evenly.

Preheat a 10 to 12-inch sauté pan with the vegetable oil. Add onion and red and green bell peppers.  Sauté until onions begin to brown. Add seasoned shrimp and sauté, stirring for ½ minute.  Add the dry white wine and lime juice to deglaze the pan.  Allow the wine to reduce by half, then add the remaining heavy cream.  Stir in the remaining Six Spice, incorporating the seasoning into the sauce. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 3 minutes. Mixture should thicken and coat the shrimp with a rich layer of sauce.
Remove and serve over rice or pasta.
